Tropical Storm Ingrid makes landfall in Mexico

Posted: Updated:
LA PESCA, Mexico -

Earlier this morning, Hurricane Ingrid weakened to tropical storm status as it made landfall in northern Mexico.

Landfall occurred near the fishing and beach community of La Pesca, Mexico, about 175 miles south of Brownsville, Texas.

When the National Hurricane Center detected landfall around 7 AM CDT (8 AM EDT), maximum sustained winds were 65 mph.

By 10 AM CDT (11 AM EDT), maximum sustained winds weakened to 60 mph, and the storm was moving west-northwest at 8 mph.

Flooding rain will inundate portions of northeastern Mexico, with some locations likely to receive more than a foot of rain over the next couple of days.

On U.S. soil, heavy but beneficial rain is falling over parts of South Texas, although the rain totals in South Texas will remain far less than what falls 100-200 miles to the south, in Mexico.
